Italy: Constitutional Court Decision on Gay Marriage Due Today
Here's an international court case quietly bubbling underneath the surface. Today, the Italian Constitutional Court will decide whether several provisions under Italy's civil code that currently restrict marriage to just "one man, one woman" are unconstitutional. Their ruling could be a major step toward marriage equality in Bel Paese - a nickname for Italy that literally means "Beautiful Country." Nothing could make it more beautiful than marriage equality, right?

The lawsuit, and a subsequent campaign known as Affermazione Civile ("Civil Affirmation" in English ... but really, it sounds so much more beautiful in Italian), has been pushed by two Italian gay rights organizations, Certi Diritti and Rete Lenford. These two groups believe that denying same-sex couples the right to get married violates principles of equality set forth under Italy's constitution.

"Gay people have the same mix of reasons as non-gay people for wanting the freedom to marry, and the law should not discriminate against committed couples or deny them civil marriage licenses with the same responsibilities, same rules, and same respect," they write.
